Helpful Tips on Pest Control Common Problems


Pest control is done when you have a problem with pests, and prevention is always better than cure. Throughout the article, you will give simple helpful tips on pest management that will help you do simple things that could save you from having companies come and visit you.

Sometimes when you have a pest problem, it can be challenging to return things to normal. You may spend lots of money and time trying to get rid of them. Use the advice given to you to tackle your pest problem before they have taken over.

Simple measures just like stuff steel wool into holes that pests could enter through. Although rodents can gnaw through many different materials, they are not strong enough to chew the metal strands from steel wool. Any opening more extensive than a half-inch should be stuffed. These rodents can come through small areas.

Before purchasing a home, have it checked out by A1 Pest Control Canberra, a reputable company with many years of experience. Bob and his team check specific signals for infestation, and they know what species they are looking for and can identify the pest straight away.

Thermal imaging is the best practice when having a professional manager determine whether you have termites, as the instrument can detect body heat, movement and moisture in walls and other places the human eye can not see.

Storage of your food properly will also help to deter pests. All forms of insects and pests are drawn in by the smell that most foods give away. With this in mind, it only makes sense to eliminate the scent and remove the temptation. It is important not to let your garbage linger in the bin too long. Insects, cockroaches and rodents alike find it hard to resist the smell of garbage.

Are you struggling with ants? A simple mixture of borax and sugar to eliminate them. Sugar attracts the ants, and the borax kills them. All you need is a cup of both sugar and borax and a jar. Put some holes in the top of the lid to make it easy to sprinkle. Warning- keep this mixture away from pets and small children.

When you plant bushes around your house, be sure to leave 1mtr clearance. Many insects will live in the trees and will have easy access to windows, gaps in the roof and doorways. By placing trees within close proximity of the home, you run the risk of these insects or even larger pests like rats and possums invading your home.

Although growing your own fruit, fruit trees in your garden are a sense of pride; fallen fruit that is not raked up quickly or fruit nearing ready to be picked will attract possums, fruit fly and vermin. The trouble with this is training the animals to visit for a food source. When the fruit is gone, they will then look for entry to your home.

It is obviously easier to gain pests than it is to get rid of them. We hope you have picked up some good information to rid your home of pests.
